Blur bassist Alex James has said Graham Coxon is considering rejoining his former bandmates for a new album.
Speaking in the Sunday Times, he said: "I've been talking to Graham and there might be some good news. It's by no means in the bag, but it looks quite promising. Maybe the time is right. We've always left the door open for him, so that's what I'm hoping for."
Coxon left the band during the Think Tank recording sessinos in 2002 and has since been in occasional contact with the band. He recently told Pitchfork, “Would it be a bit too scary? What would the dynamic be in a studio? Would I have to do promotion? Would I tour? You know, it’s a lot of thinking. So I guess I still mull around and think about it every now and then.”
Back in November, James - who is currently working as a farming correspondent for Radio 4 - said he'd like Blur to "have a happy four-piece ending." At the same time it was suggested that once singer Damon Albarn finished touring with his side project The Good, The Bad And The Queen in February, Blur would start what is likely to be their final album.
Should Blur do their final album about Coxon? And have you missed him?
